Princess Alethea’s Fairy Tale Theatre: Episode 11

Episode 11: “Fitcher’s Bird” (8:07)

Known also as “Fitcher’s Brides” and “Bluebeard,” this is the infamous fairy tale about a serial killer. Fair warning: the story does contain scenes where maidens are hacked to bloody pieces. But worry not, for everything turns out okay in the end…if mass-murderous revenge is your idea of “okay.”

What lessons do we take from this story? Well, if a strange man tells you not to go into a locked room and then gives you the key anyway, IT’S A TRAP. Also, eggshells are incredibly porous.

Happy Easter!
